Spiritual Care

GOG has organised 9 Days of Recollection for older people in different venues across the diocese: Leeds (3), Bradford, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Wetherby, Mirfield and Keighley. Days have been led by older priests and religious willing to share something of the challenges and riches of later life and to stimulate discussion among participants.

The format of the day generally includes a couple of talks, an opportunity for discussion and for one to one talks for those who choose it, and Mass to end the day.

comments about our Days of Recollection Our parish pilot also provides spiritual care through a monthly Community Liturgy and Lunch at which 15-25 (mainly) older people meet together to pray and socialize, by offering communal celebrations of the Sacrament of the Sick, and by ensuring that all care homes in the parish have information about  the spiritual support that the parish can offer to residents and how to get in touch.
